Off-topic Post: The 100 Years Show (2015)

The 100 Years Show (2015) is a charming, sweet, and inspiring documentary short about Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera. Her work is extraordinary.

Just as intriguing?

Her life story and glacial climb to prominence in the art world. (She turned 99 during filming of the documentary.) Oh, and a work ethic that puts us all to shame.

The 100 Years Show (2015):

  • Directed by: Alison Klayman
  • Starring: Carmen Herrera
  • Runtime: 30 minutes
  • Release Date: January 2017

The film is currently streaming on Netflix (USA).
